We determined the visual prognosis of 94 eyes in 92 patients having age-related macular degeneration, a discrete choroidal neovascular membrane directly under the center of the foveal avascular zone (subfoveal), and an initial visual acuity of 20/100 or better. Of the patients who were reexamined 24 months following their initial presentation, 77% had lost at least four lines of vision and 64% had lost at least six lines.
